Not without help: The sperm and the egg unite in the fallopian tube for a normal conception. If there are no fallopian tubes, conception would probably be dependent on ivf procedures.

No, if tubes absent: There needs to be a way for the sperm to get to the egg, and typically that's through the fallopian tubes. If the tubes have been surgically removed, this not possible. If they've been"tied" (typically cauterized/burned, which results in scarring) as with sterilization, there is a small chance an opening can develop, with risk of pregnancy that can be a normal pregnancy, or abnormal in the tube.
